In this world of technology, home security market follows a pretty predictable pattern. And we see most of the DIY security cameras performing with high-definition live streaming video along with cloud storage for that video including some kind of motion detection feature that typically cost about $ 200. Tend Secure’s Lynx Indoor camera offers you all those features in adorable price which is just $60 ( £ 45 / AU $ 80 ).
A Jaw-dropping offer it is, providing you 1080p HD resolution, 7-day free event-based cloud storage and advanced, facial recognition-based motion alerts, this all for $60 only.
Although The Lynx is slated is performing with the Google Assistant by the end of July, it doesn’t currently integrate with any major smart home platforms.
The Removeable base of the Lynx is designed oddly and it doesn’t hold the camera in place well.
Though it is not a perfect camera it’s overall value including its features makes it easy to recommend.
You will be surprised to see budget HD DIY camera on the market, Tend Secure should have thrown some extra money at the Lynx’s design.
The base that is supposed to support camera upright on a table or other flat surface does not get the job done well. Have a look at the image, simply slide the camera into the base without a latch closure or any other locking mechanism to keep it from moving around.
Tape it down or skip a tabletop installation altogether (with your purchase, wall mounting hardware comes, but it is not ideal.
Camera’s small size help you to get blended it into the surroundings more easily. You can say a camera is fine otherwise, if not a little utilitarian.
